Our response to the Coronavirus situation.

COVID-19 and Worship Online

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I would like to let you know that our Church Council together with Pastor David McCarthy are carefully observing this dynamically changing situation related to spreading of the coronavirus in Belgium. We are in contact with authorities, EPUB (Eglise Protestante Unie de Belgique) and we introduced measures necessary to minimaze the risk to our congregation members.

As of Friday, March 13 we have temporarily suspended our Sunday morning worship service in Auderghem. Instead, we offer you video recording of the service – the morning worsjip of March 22 is available at Sermons page or in vimeoNow you can watch and listen to it together with your loved ones!

In upcoming weeks, we will be monitoring the situation and – if we still cannot meet in person – we will continue delivering you the best quality of sermon recording we can.

At the same time, we stay in prayer for those who are already affected by the virus, especially those in serious condition, and for medical staff, working in difficult circumstances, and we encourage you to pray with us.

Blessings,

Agnieszka Szymańska

Mission of the Month – “Protestant Social Center”

FJKM

Mission of the Month – March

The Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar

The Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (or FJKM, the abbreviation for the Malagasy equivalent) has nearly six million members, more than 40% of Madagascar’s Christian population.

The FJKM has placed a high priority on its division of “Ministry for Marginalized People” (SAFFIFAA). The Rev. Helivao Poget is the national director of the ministry, and she works in the capital city of Antananarivo as a chaplain among street people – prostitutes, drug addicts, street kids, street families – sharing the Gospel and helping them spiritually and financially to move away from street life.

This month we want to support this effort.

On Sunday, 8 March, the Rev. Helivao Poget came to IPC to share stories with us about her ministry in Madagascar, especially her church’s pastoral ministry for women, and their outreach to the street children of Madagascar.
